Wales Food and Drink
Wales is laced with edible pleasures for foodies. Luscious Welsh lamb or sparkling fresh fish can be enjoyed with a glass of Welsh white wine. Farmers' markets and food festivals are dotted around the country, while growing numbers of celebrated chefs work from the Welsh countryside.
• Welsh rarebit (cheese on toast).
• Bara brith (a type of tea bread).
• Laver bread, which is made with seaweed.
• Welsh cakes (made with sultanas or currants).
• Welsh cawl (a meat and vegetable broth).
A service charge (usually 10-12.5%) might be included in the prices stated on the menu but it is more likely to be added to the bill at the end. This is technically an optional charge. Where 'service is not included', a tip of at least 10% is expected. Diners should check the bill thoroughly, as tipping is not required on top of a service charge. Tipping is not expected, but is welcomed, in bars and pubs if ordering at the bar.
